Each night, a different scholar gives a presentation in character followed by a Q&A session from the audience, first in character, then as a scholar.

During the day, there are two workshops held at the center, each led by a different scholar covering a topic pertinent to either their character or some facet of the historical time frame.  Workshop-goers frequently bring a brown bag lunch to enjoy during the short break between workshops.

Local musicians, as well as the winner of the student Chautauquan contest, usually entertain the audience briefly before each evening's performance.  A variety of snacks will be available for purchase.  Make an evening of it and enjoy the ambiance of a summer night under the tent while learning about a fascinating time in history when the threat of nuclear winter hovered over the world like a spectre.
